I wonder how "sola scripture" works with a population that is largely illiterate? Not that everyone in Africa, Latin America and Asia can't read I am guessing that a fairly large percentage would be.

We support a large number of missionaries and are translating The SCRIPTURE into native languages.

Sola Scriputra is pretty straight forward, as people read and begin to understand the SCRIPTURES they quickly realize that they need to place their FAITH in JESUS CHRIST after that the HOLY SPIRIT takes over.

I certainly hope you're not suggesting that the soveriegn Lord of All Creation, the Creator and Sustainer of the entire Universe can be hampered by how well someone can read?

If He means for someone to come to salvation and know His Word, He will see it acomplished, regardless of whatever mental, physical, or geographical state the person is in.
